Who we’re here for

Ways to Wellness is here to support people with long-term physical health conditions, who live in the west of Newcastle and are served by one of 18 general practices.

Ways to Wellness is for patients who are aged 40-74 and are on the relevant QOF Disease Register for any of the following long-term conditions:

  • COPD and asthma
  • Diabetes type 1 or 2
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • Epilepsy
  • Osteoporosis

The support we offer

Ways to Wellness complements the medical support that people receive, which helps them to feel more confident in managing their long-term conditions and making positive lifestyle choices.

Each Ways to Wellness participant works with a link worker, who helps each person to find ways to manage their long-term conditions.

The link workers help participants to produce an agreed action plan, which may include one or more of the following:

  • Getting involved in local groups and activities.
  • Developing positive relationships.
  • Accessing specialist services and support.
  • Healthy eating and cooking.
  • Getting more active.
  • Getting support around benefits and welfare rights.
